    Hi

    I was considering buying a new iPod touch 2nd gen, as I sold my 1st gen one 7 months ago and I am kind of missing it.

    Is it worth buying one now? I checked the MacRumors buyer's guide and it said that there was a refresh coming soon.
    When is soon? When are the new iPods supposed to be announced? I thought they were refreshed in September, which in my books is not very soon.

    Well, i'd say just go ahead and buy the 2G.

    I don't really think that the 3G, (IF IT COMES OUT, WHICH I DON'T THINK IT WILL), will really be worth upgrading to.

    Wait, why buy something when a newer version is coming out soon? It will be faster and have extra features..

    Thanks.
    Its not worth waiting for something new to come out in a few months..if you think like that you would never buy anything.. 'cos something better is sure to come out in the future.
    I just wanted to know if anybody knows when the new iPod is coming out

    They usually are announced on September but it will not be called the iPod Touch 3G it will be something a whole lot different and it will be around the same price as the first iPod Touch 1G came out or a little bit more expensive I don't know.

    Logically, shouldn't the new iPod touch be called the 3G? As this means its the Third Generation in the touch range of iPods...

    Be it called whatever I would advice you not to wait or if you are desperate to get on to a most recent one, wait till september. Ipt2g is really good for its price!!!

    As its still a while till there supposedly is an iPod refresh, I think I'll take the opportunity and get my new touch. All it needs is good care - I can sell it IF I want the new 3g when/if it comes out

    Camera doesn't matter to me, as my phone will almost definately beat any camera that brings out on the touch.
    GPS would be handy, but its hardly worth waiting 4+ months for that one feature.

    Thanks for all your help
